How to Rock the Green Eye Makeup Trend How to Rock the Green Eye Makeup Trend How to Rock the Green Eye Makeup Trend

During summer, you probably spotted a variety of nature-inspired eye makeup trends, from flower eyeliner to statement sunset eyes. Now, as summer turns to fall, green eye makeup is what you can expect to see everywhere. The emerald green eye makeup trend has already begun to take over runways, social media feeds, and inspiration boards, and we think it’s pretty clear what color needs to be on your lids in the months to come. Richly pigmented green draws inspiration from nature and brings the lushness of greenery front and center—on your face. So, if you want to embrace the prettiest (and most popular) hue of the moment, read on to discover our three favorite ways to rock green eye makeup in your next makeup look.


Take a look around and you’ll notice one thing is true: Emerald is the new black. When it comes to lining your eyes in a super-trendy way, take a break from your beloved black eyeliner and reach for the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Wild Green instead.

The dotted cat eye: To create this look, use your green eyeliner to draw a traditional cat eye along your upper lash line. From there, use the eyeliner’s pointed tip to draw evenly spaced dots along your lower lash line. If you want your green eye makeup look to have a more retro vibe, you can make your dots a bit larger.

The double-sided cat eye: Two is better than one in some cases—and when it comes to this calligraphy-inspired cat eye, that mantra definitely rings true. This green eye makeup look is all about extending to opposite ends of the eye for a look that’s fit for an Egyptian queen. To create it, start by drawing a classic cat eye with your green eyeliner. Next, move on to your lower lash line. Draw a super-fine line from the outer edge of your nose towards the inner corner of your eye, extending halfway along your lower lid.

Since this particular green eye makeup look takes a little practice to perfect, be sure to have a cotton swab and a bottle of the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types nearby to touch up any mistakes.


One of our favorite beauty trends to emerge this year happens to be upside down under-eye makeup. It’s characterized by the boldest part of your statement eye being on your lower lid. Put two trends together by creating this eye makeup style with green eye shadow. Cover your upper lids with a neutral shadow, followed by a swipe of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald or the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Green Promenade along your lower lash line. After applying, blend out for a more ethereal finish. Top it off with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara.

Editor’s note: Afraid this look is too bold? Try placing an emerald eyeliner in your waterline for a pop of color that’s slightly more subtle. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Forest Green to get the look.


Smoky eyes will forever hold a place in our hearts (and our makeup routines). For that reason, we love the look of an emerald-tinted smoky eye for a fresh take on this standard style. To create this green eye makeup look, use an eye primer or concealer to prep your lids. Next, you’ll use the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Dual Effects in Emerald Conquest to bring your smoky eye to life. The trick to creating a perfectly blended eye is to start with the lightest green shadow in the palette before layering the darker colors on in succession to build depth. Top it off with a dusting of the pearl shadow along your brow bone and inner corner to bring a bit of brightness to an otherwise dark look.

Now that you’re a master at using green eye makeup, try your hand at sporting another color from the rainbow. Check out our article, How to Create a Trendy Peach Statement Eye, for a step-by-step tutorial.
